What is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a harmless condition characterized by discolored patches of skin. This condition develops as a result of excess pigments forming deposits in the skin. Although it poses no health risks, some people may want to treat hyperpigmentation to achieve a more even skin tone and improve their appearance.
How is Hyperpigmentation Treated?
At Florida Skin Center, we recommend chemical peels for the treatment of hyperpigmentation. A chemical peel is a treatment that utilizes specialized chemical solutions to improve the texture and tone of the skin. This process can improve blotchy, damaged, and uneven skin, so many guests notice a better overall complexion thanks to their hyperpigmentation treatment.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
During the chemical peel procedure, most people experience a very short, brief sensation of burning followed by numbness and stinging. These peels are typically just uncomfortable while they are on the skin for a few minutes. You can expect some dryness, flaking, and redness following your chemical peel. It is critical to protect your skin from the sun following your treatment, as it will be highly sensitive. Your skin will improve gradually over the following weeks as the skin exfoliates and heals. To learn more, please refer to our chemical peels page.
How Much Does Hyperpigmentation Treatment Cost?
In order to determine the exact cost of your treatment, we invite guests to schedule an appointment so that we can develop a personalized treatment plan that will satisfy both your health and cosmetic goals. Once a treatment plan is determined, we will be able to provide a clear breakdown of costs. To make our services accessible to those who need them, we offer flexible financing and payment options. We also accept insurance when applicable.
Are there products I can use to treat Hyperpigmentation?
At Florida Skin Center we have an array of products that paid perfectly with treatments that help reduce Hyperpigmentation on all areas of the body:
- Lytera & Retinol – Lytera and retinol are two different products that we often pair together when talking about hyperpigmentation. Lytera is a pigment corrector that works underneath skin layers to help break up and lighten pigmented areas. Retinol is a product that is going to help with cellular turnover, meaning it will exfoliate the skin from the top layers helping to reduce the appearance of the pigmentation while also helping to fight aging, fine lines, wrinkles, and will help other products, like Lytera penetrate deeper into the skin.
- Phloretin CF – Phloretin CF is a Skinceuticals antioxidant. Antioxidants are such an essential part of every regimen. Antioxidants help fight damage done by free radicals that we are exposed to in the environment. This specific antioxidant also has ingredients that will help lighten the pigmented areas of your skin.
- Even Up – Even up is a coverage product by Colorescience. This product covers and corrects the hyperpigmentation on the face, chest and arms. It has licorice root in it, which will help break down the pigmentation and is also tinted to help give some coverage to the areas as we work to remove them altogether.
